How shall I take modafinil? and is it recommended to cycle the medication?
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
No, it is not necessary to cycle it. However, some people do take days off. For example, they will take the weekends off if they don't need it for work or school
However it is safe to take it daily. You don't really need to cycle it. There is very little tolerance that develops over time.
It stays effective
